Buy Zcash via Credit Card

At this moment there is no possibility to buy Zcash directly via credit card payment. If you want to use a credit card anyway, you can buy Bitcoins via credit card first on CEX.IO and exchange those Bitcoins for Zcash on one of the exchanges in the list above. Note that trading on CEX.IO requires a complete account verification.

UPDATE (August 21, 2019): Now CEX.IO supports direct purchase of Zcash via credit card.
UPDATE (March 9, 2020): On CEX.IO you can unfortunately no longer buy Zcash with a credit card. But this is now possible on Coinswitch.
